Stocks gave back some of their recent gains Wednesday as a batch of discouragi­ng economic data prompted investors to take a pause a day after the market’s record-setting climb. The S&P 500 dropped 0.2% a day after setting an all-time high. Industrial, energy and health care companies accounted for much of the decline. The number of Americans seeking unemployme­nt aid jumped last week to the highest level in more than a month.
